Acerca del libro
This book details the Burmese ceremony of Shinbyu, which is the Buddhist initiation ceremony for novice monks. The rite of passage is visually chronicled with a unique twist; it is told through her own son. The ceremony
takes place in his father's village, which is located in a remote destination in the far north of the country. Her son, Yarrow is half Burmese and has grown up between two very different worlds, that of America and that of Myanmar. Together, mother and son explore how this dynamic has shaped his outlook on his young life so far.
Antara is an exploration that deals with the intersection of countries, culture, and family. It is a celebration of lineage and tradition, while also embracing the art of one’s individuality and diversity.
